Motorcycle Crash On South Peoria Claims One Life 

(September 26) On Friday, September 25, 2020, at about 7:15 P.M., Aurora Police Officers and Aurora Fire Rescue were called to the area of South Peoria Street and East Florida Avenue on reports of a motorcycle crash. 

Initial investigation showed that a motorcycle was traveling south on South Peoria Street and a Toyota Camry was traveling north on South Peoria Street.  The Camry made a left turn onto East Florida Avenue into the path of the motorcycle, causing a collision.  Sadly, the driver of the motorcycle was pronounced deceased at the scene.  The driver of the Camry remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation.  At this time, it does not appear that speed or alcohol were a factor. 

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office after positive identification and next-of-kin notification. 

Traffic Unit Investigators will continue to investigate and attempt to reconstruct the scene to determine speeds and other contributing factors of the crash. 

We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash, has dash cam footage, or if you have any information about this incident, please contact the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
